Some new photos for the upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger movie have appeared online and they have me pretty excited. The first couple of photos that we published a month ago didn’t look too good, but the new set looks great showcasing Captain America in various costumes and Hugo Weaving as the early incarnation of the Red Skull.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
The year is 1942, and Steve Rogers is a scrawny lad who desperately wants to fight Nazis for his country but can’t because he’s been deemed physically unfit. His fate — and his physique — is radically transformed when he signs up for Project: Rebirth, a secret military operation that turns wimps into studs using drugs and assorted sci-fi hoo-ha. There’s a love interest (Major Peggy Carter, played Haley Atwell), there’s a sidekick (Bucky Barnes, played by Sebastian Stans), and there’s the Red Skull (Hugo Weaving), Hitler’s treacherous head of advanced weaponry, whose own plan for world domination involves a magical object known as The Tesseract (comic fans know it better as The Cosmic Cube)
